as high-ranking, frankly as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. we need a person of enormous prestige and influence so have these parties sit down together. we're crumbling all over the middle east. >> john: that was john mccain talking about how much work is needed to regain credibility. >> boy. that will hurt your head if you think about that too long. >> john: somebody should tell him we have already had bill clinton trying to negotiate middle east peace. it has been attempted before and in fact the prime mainster of israel paid for it with his life. you know, i really think that there is no military solution to israel and palestine, and i'm on the side of any christian jew or muslim who is trying to solve our problems non-violently, because the only solution i think, is the next gandhi is going to have to come from israel or palestine. the next person to understand that non-violence is the only way to get social change out of a situation like this and that will also be a person male or female who understands social media and the digital
talked to bill clinton after the election. he said that clinton told him, i thought you were going to win, then the hurricane happened. romney using the hurricane in his discussions why. >> okay, david, thank you. this is late breaking news, i know you'll be back with made in america in just a moment. >>> but now we will go overseas to the tension rising between israelis and the palestinians today, because israel killed the military leader of the palestinian militant group hamas, in an air strike. look. this is the car in gaza, carrying the hamas commander as an israeli rocket hits it. israel said this was retaliation for rockets fired by palestinian militants. overall, israel hitting 20 targets. it's being called the most serious escalation in violence there in four years. >>> and back here at home, a very big drama today, about the meningitis outbreak. the man who owns that drug factory, contaminated by fungus, came to be grilled on capitol hill. and in the same room, the families of those who died, giving gripping testimony, saying, it is a nightmare that will not end. here's abc's dav
people. one way to go back to where it was under bill clinton. that's what the president's saying he won't budge on. another way though is to close loopholes or cap deductions. the think tank third way said you could get about $1.3 million capping deductions. that affects the wealthy. there's many ways to get revenue, why is he only saying i'm going to go for this way? >> let's remember that he was very conciliatory in his speech on election night. and he even reiterated today, erin, that if republicans have other ideas on how to get to where we need to go, if other democrats have other ideas, which would mean to deal with this in a balanced way that does not hurt middle class families, workers, seniors, the most vulnerable, i think he's willing to listen to that. so i think that is where the compromise can lie, if republicans really understand they're the ones that are going to need to give more. >> do you agree with that? the president did win electoral popular vote. the margin was only 2%, but he did win it. >> sure. well, elections have consequences, right? and this is the consequenc
the republicans don't agree to raise the top back to where they were when bill clinton left office going over the fiscal cliff? >> i don't see a realistic way to solve this without a recognition. let's see the positive side. it's encouraging use in the leadership recognize we are going to have to generate and that's a good recognition, but you know, we're just at the beginning. we will see how that goes. i agree this is going to be tough. i know the lack of clarity on the resolution is going to be a burden and cause some uncertainty but we have to go through because we are going to govern this country better if we are going to find a better way to make sure we are supporting things that will improve the long-term growth in the country we have to figure out a way to resolve the current divide on these basic questions about the long-term. i think that is worth trying to do. >> well, as you have said and the president said we have to both raise taxes and restrain spending. the president's proposal so far on medicare has been largely limited to the provider side. is the president going to leave h
, but the republicans have substantial power because of the rules of the senate. the democratic president. as bill clinton would say, it's arithmetic. nothing is going to get done unless we find a way to work together. and i'll tell you, the public has just had it. well, you know, the approval rating of congress is in single digits. it's pretty awful. and it's all about, in my view, the inability to simply sit down and solve some of these problems. >> senator, quick question, brian sullivan from cnbc here. would you support a fiscal cliff resolution on taxes that did not involve an elevation of the top-end rate? in other words, 35 to 39.6, would you support a tax increase but only as boehner would like to do through the reductions or deductions, or are you fixed to that rate? >> well, i think we're fixed too much on this issue because it's only a small piece. even if you do the increase on the people above $250,000, it's a long way from solving the full problem. i'm a simpson-bowles guy myself in the sense that i think there's got to be an across-the-board settlement. so i think what you're really
, immigration and other things? >> just as with bill clinton, got us to raise taxes, i don't think the tax increases we did under clinton as i recall talking about $36, the notion there were people out there having marginal rates going up by 36,000 are going to say oh well, this is not worth it. i don't think the tax increases we voted under clinton caused the great economic boom but they did not correct it. and in favor of raising taxes, despite the fact he was raising taxes, the development is republican efforts to beat him over the head, it helped him some, but the fact that it was neutral and beyond that, what that stands for was relevant, mandate against severe cuts in domestic spending against severe cuts in medicare. the republicans on the one hand, a major argument about medicare, cut $700 billion you shouldn't have done that so there is a mandate for avoiding the kind of cuts to domestic programs that were important out of this election. mitt romney did as a favor of advocating for significantly increased military spending. first-time candidate for president said we don't need tha
